We walked from our place to Zamek recently and cut through the Chopin park that we observed from the tram a hundred times. It's was created by the Jesuit College in the 1700s. It was originally a botanical garden, useful in biology lectures. The garden later became part of a residence, and in 1938 it was opened to the public as a park.
|One of the first things we noticed on entering the park were all the rules - many "don'ts"|
|They forgot to list "no graffiti"|
|Fortunately, the marble bust of Chopin survived the war, albeit in another loaction|
|Arriving at Zamek via something other than our usual path, Ed pointed out this monument to the Polish cryptanalysts who were the first to break the Enigma code|

This walk was to the lake for coffee, to what we will always refer to as Caroline's and my coffee shop, with a stop at the mall for groceries on the way home. Our coffee shop, at the west end of Lake Malta, could also be described as a biker bar. It's home to the Mother Chapter of Moto Magneto, a Polish motorcycle club, complete with a Confederate flag in the window.
